Hiawatha web server

No comments
I have compiled the latest Hiawatha, version 10.6, as the PET used in Quirky and Easy is ancient. Project site:
https://www.hiawatha-webserver.org/

This is how I compiled it:
# mkdir build

# cd build
# cmake .. -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr -DCMAKE_INSTALL_SYSCONFDIR=/etc -DCMAKE_INSTALL_LIBDIR=/usr/lib -DCMAKE_INSTALL_BINDIR=/usr/bin -DCMAKE_INSTALL_SBINDIR=/usr/sbin -DCMAKE_INSTALL_MANDIR=/usr/share/man -DWEBROOT_DIR=/root/Web-Server -DLOG_DIR=/var/log/hiawatha -DPID_DIR=/var/run -DWORK_DIR=/var/lib/hiawatha -DCONFIG_DIR=/etc/hiawatha
# make
# new2dir make install

Desktop icons new layout

No comments
After an eternity, I am building a pup-derivative with a new layout of icons on the screen.

The partition icons are still there, above the tray.

The others are now just one line across the top of the screen, and those less-required are removed.

As SFS files are important in Easy, this is a new icon, labeled "sfsget". This is alongside what was named "install" but is now going to be either "pkgset" or "petget".

The renaming of "install" will remove confusion, due to the different meanings of that word.

I will also have radky's PupControl, which will launch via the "setup" icon. radky has just released a new version, that is Easy-compatible.


SFSget rewritten

No comments


I have rewritten /usr/sbin/sfsget, the SFS downloader app.

This was not in Quirky, as Quirky is for full installations, though that changed somewhat later on.

Easy OS, however, is exclusively based on a layered filesystem, using aufs or overlay, and SFS files are making a big comeback.

Easy though, is very different from Puppy, and I had to rewrite SFSget from scratch.

Done, and it works real nice.

I decided to keep this blog going for awhile longer, as still testing various alternatives.

THIS BLOG STILL RUNNING!

Yes, this blog has reached EOL (End Of Life).

This is the final post!



I have moved to a new hosting provider, and taking the opportunity for a clean sweep of just about everything.

This blog script is unmaintained and a security risk. About a year ago, or more, I was forced to disable comments.

The domain name bkhome.org is now pointing to the new site, and I have installed HTMLy, a lovely flat-file blog written in PHP. The new blog is here:
